Part 2 of 10 Estates, Trusts and Probate Law Luncheon Series: Estate Planning for Digital Assets

Date & Time: Thursday, October 16, 2014 from 12:00 pm to 2:00 pm

CLE Credit: No

Event Description
This program will address the unique concerns in planning for the administration of digital assets and how properly drafted estate planning documents can simplify access to these assets by fiduciaries. 

Topics that will be addressed include: What are digital assets? What are the federal laws and other barriers that may prevent a fiduciary from accessing digital assets? What are recommended provisions to include in estate planning documents such as wills and powers of attorney to ensure access to digital assets? What are the risks involved in improperly planning for these assets?

Our presenter will be Naomi R. Cahn, a law professor at George Washington University, who teaches estates and trusts and elder law.   She is the Reporter for the Committee on Fiduciary Access to Digital Assets of the Uniform Law Commission. Her committee drafted a uniform law which seeks to ease access to digital assets by fiduciaries which was recently approved by the Uniform Law Commission.

This luncheon program is sponsored by the Estates, Trusts and Probate Law Section.
